Triesnecker crater on the Moon 2014.

We are very close to the Moon's center as seen from Earth. North is down, as seen through a telescope.
Here are some notable craters as Pallas and Murchison (50/58 km) and Triesnecker (26 km). They can not be visually detected with the naked eye or with binoculars, but with an astronomical telescope.

Triesnecker crater is located on a stretch called Sinus Medii. About this I have discussed in several articles.

Crater name is put in the memory of Franz de Paula Triesnecker (April 2, 1745 - January 29, 1817), which was an Austrian astronomer.
